The TP1300LS was replaced over a year ago with a new model, the R4330.
Primary differences between the 1300 and the 4330 is that the 1300 unit had a two-blade cutter head with a two screw post adjustment system, and a head lock mechanism. A leg set was provided, as was an extra blade set.
The R4330 is no longer provided with an extra set of blades or a leg set. To my knowledge a leg set is not available from Ridgid either. However, the 4330 is improved with a 3-blade cutter head and a four screw post system for adjusting the cutter height. There is also an improved chip chute.
The four post system design did away with the need of a head lock mechnism which is no longer incorporated in the design. There have been a handful of posts regarding some headmovement though. I do believe that this is only a minor report and have read nothing that substantiates a wide problem. Generally, most posts I've read about the R4330 have been very positive.
